450,000 people live in Niagara and estimates tell us that 400,000 of them are far from God (90%).
If we want to reach 1% of this 400,000 that means we need 40 church starts that reach 100 new disciples each.
*this does not take into account the 100,000 additional people that are expected to move to Niagara by 2030.
The Good News is the Harvest is Plentiful, Luke 10:2. We desire to be a church that obeys the Great Commission by multiplying disciples and churches through Niagara. We want to start churches from evangelism and not for evangelism.
Here is how God is currently working at Harbour to fulfill our LEAD OUT vision of MORE IMPACT
Graham and Sharon Bulmer lead Q50, Harbour's first church planting that officially launched in September 2018.
They bring many years of pastoral, teaching, leadership development and administrative experience to the Q50 Community Church Plant. They served as missionaries in Ecuador for almost 15 years and have pastored here in Canada. Their passion for life is focused on their two grown daughters, love for the outdoors, tropical birds, running, motorcycling and curling.
Q50 currently meets on Sunday's at 10am at 795 Hamilton Regional Rd #8, Stoney Creek.
We’re a multi-ethnic bilingual church plant of Harbour Fellowship Church, a growing community for the committed, the critically-minded and the spiritual inquirer. We’re dedicated to advancing the gospel, preserving God’s truth in an age of religious confusion, and cultivating community life. We’re also passionate about cultural renewal in St. Catharines and Canada.
Join us for fellowship as we worship together, pray together and study God’s word in community. We love God and we love people, that’s why we want to live the gospel together in every area of our lives.
We are currently meeting at Harbour Fellowship Church, 51 S. Service Rd., St. Catharines, on Sundays at 3:00pm.
Burdened by a desire to see lives changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ, a group of young adults began to meet at the Pony Mini Mart in downtown St. Catharines to worship God, study the Bible, and encourage one another in evangelism. By God’s grace, out of those meetings emerged Pony Church.
Our vision is to be a community of Christians Dedicated to following the Great Commission by equipping and encouraging believers to engage the lost, by making and baptizing new disciples, and by teaching them to love and obey the word of God.
We meet every Wednesday at 7PM and every other Sunday at 3PM. We are currently meeting at Harbour Fellowship Church in the Dock.
